  The Document Search Interface


El Paso E&P approached Digital Data Services for assistance in the electronic archiving of over 549 banker boxes containing original documentation related to producing and non-producing wells. The archiving served two main purposes. The first was for data entry of producing information into a database for analysis, and the second was to insure that an archived back-up would exist should a catastrophe occur.

  Online Document Retrieval System


DDS scanned over 362,000 small format documents and 6,880 oversized drilling reports into an Adobe .PDF format. DDS initiated the project by developing a custom tracking system in Microsoft Access to insure that the whereabouts and status of each banker box. DDS provided daily status reports about which boxes were completed, which were waiting for production, and which boxes were in production. At the suggestion of DDS, the files were also organized into an online document management system which enabled the user to perform multiple search criteria such as well number, operator name, county, and vicinity.
